Barracuda Spam Appliance

The Barracuda Spam Appliance is a spam/virus filter that scans each message, and, based on a heuristic algorithm rates each message for the probability that it is spam.

Every day you will receive a message at 12:00 p.m. in your inbox reporting on what messages in the last 24 hours have been quarantined and need your review. This report is called the "Spam Quarantine Summary". There will be a "click here" link at the bottom of the email next to "To view your entire quarantine inbox or manage your preferences".

This link is valid for 24 hours.
